This prayer is intended to invite the Holy Spirit to dwell in our homes. The Holy Spirit enables and directs us to parent according to God’s will if we so desire. This is why we invite Him in our hearts and homes too. He will impart in us its gifts and fruits to enable us to walk victoriously in our sanctification process. That is He moulds, shapes and transforms us into the likeness of Christ. He renews our minds and gives us the grace to accept the righteousness of God as we work out our salvation.

Prayer to Invite The Holy Spirit in our Lives and to Cleanse our Homes.

Heavenly Father, I come before you today with a heart of gratitude for your love and the gift of salvation. This is the day you have made, I rejoice and be glad in it. I come before your throne to dedicate myself and my children to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you for the authority you have given me to be strong in your mighty power. Right now I rebuke every scheme of the devil over my life and my household in the name of Jesus. I submit our lives to you, Lord.

For I do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness and against the spiritual hosts in the heavenly realm. Therefore I put on the whole armour that I may stand my ground on the day.

I stand firm having girded my waist with the belt of truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness and my feet fitted in with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace. I take up the shield of faith to extinguish with all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.

Dear God I pray for the gift of discerning spirits that I may test them to rebuke and remove any spirit in me and in my house that is not of you. I ask that your Holy Spirit may reveal to me anything that I need to remove from this home that does not glorify you, Lord. Father, I pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to make my dwelling, your dwelling place. That your Holy Spirit may fill up my home completely.

Almighty God, You say that if I make you the Most High my refuge and my dwelling, no harm will overtake me and no disaster will come near my house. For you will command your angels to take charge concerning me to guard me in all my ways (Psalms 91:9-11).

Dear Lord, I ask that you send your angels to encamp around me and my household for I fear you, Lord. I open my heart and my home to your Holy angels to assist me to cleanse all the unclean spirits that may dwell in my home. I pray that you open up the windows of heaven just like you did for Jacob (Genesis 28:12). Set up the ladder in my home that reaches the top of heaven that I may behold your angels ascending and descending into my home from it. Make this the reality of my home every day in the name of Jesus Christ.

Thank you, Lord, for your angels taking charge of us. May they stand guard of every corner of the house, every parameter be it, the front, back or side by side, rooftop to the floor. Father protect and preserve my family from every danger, disaster, distractions, disobedience, pride, curses, stagnations, delays, sins of the flesh.

I plead the blood of Jesus over all my family members. Father give them the mark of exemption from the forces of darkness on their foreheads, annoint them Lord. Save them just like you did for the children of Israel as they were leaving Egypt.

Allow my home to be of peace. The peace that you left unto us, not us the world giveth (John 14:27). Remove all manners of anxiety in me and my household, but teach us to rejoice and give thanks to you always. For I know, we are a chosen generation, children of destiny. We are walking in power for we are seated in with Christ Jesus in the Heavenly places.

Therefore by the same authority given unto me, I rebuke all the unclean spirits that lay claims on the grounds of this house based on past activities done by the past occupants to leave now and never return in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

I cover my house and family with the precious blood of Jesus. I pray that your mercies, favour, love may be upon my house. Let your grace sustain our anointing Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Your word is quick and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). Let it penetrate to the deepest core of our beings that we may eat it just like Prophet Jeremiah did (Jeremiah 15:16).

For your word is your spirit too. (1 John 5:7, Hebrews 4:12, Revelation 19:15). Father, I pray now that I may be able to pray in the Spirit in all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests, being alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Thank you, Lord, that it is finished. Thank you, Lord, for filling me up With your Holy Spirit, for filling up my children, my entire household.

In Jesus precious and mighty name, we pray. AMEN. AMEN and AMEN. Shalom
